    ^^ Of course... she's from Cleveland. ;) Traci's Fast Cars is a classic and sounds great. Too bad she tried to make hits after her S/T release...

    Me? Wrapped up my "Live" binge with the best music DVD I own... and not just because it's the only one I own.

    Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
    The CD is great as well, but if you like the "Heads" and you've never seen what many critics call "the best concert movie ever made", look for it - at least for a rental. It's just a phemoninally wonderful visual stage show (complete with "the BIG SUIT") and the SQ is top drawer.

    Now I seem to be moving into a Country Rock mode starting with:
    The Outlaws - Greatest Hits of...
    Have to say that there are a couple misses here, which is not a good sign for compilation 'hits' disc, but then there's "There Goes Another Love Song", "Hurry Sundown", "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" and the classic, "Green Grass & High Tides". Unfortunately "Ghost Riders..." is a live cut, and the SQ is just OK-ish.

    Apparently there's a better comp disc out now, Best of the Outlaws: Green Grass & High Tides, but 'til I get it, this'll do...

    More later,

    Just a chance to listen to some of the pristine vinyl that I picked up last week, plus my bro sent me a shipment of more than 50 of his vinyl dupes, thanks Bro!

    Right now:
    Frank Zappa: Sheik Yerbouti! This was my brothers extra copy. God, I haven't heard this album since the early 80s. I forgot how cool Frank was.

    A couple hours ago:
    Ida Cox w/ the Coleman Hawkins Quintet: Blues for Rampart Street. This was one of the pristine albums that I picked up. It was sealed until tonight, first time on a TT. Great recording from the end of her career. Not bad for $2.

    Frank Zappa - Apostrophe...

    Picked this up on Sunday.....mint. While I'm still not a 100% Zappa convert, there is some FANTASTIC stuff on this album. You can hear a lot of stuff that other bands later just blatantly ripped off.

    Added bonus, this is one WELL recorded LP. Some great SDA stuff in it as well.

    Thumbs up

    Lonnie Brooks - Hot Shot
    1983, Alligator - AL 4731 Stereo LP



    Lonnie had the best band I've ever heard behind him at this moment in time: Dion Payton on lead (who played with and then headed John Lee Hooker's band after his death), Ken Sajdak on keyboards (one of Chicago's very finest roadhouse organ sylists), and Abb Locke on tenor sax (a long-time personal acquaintence who has toured with about every big name rock and blues act around.) This album has a really live gig vibe. Side B opens with "I Want All My Money Back" which is a signature tune and showcases Lonnie's style to the 9s. Good stuff!

    Eric Clapton-Blues

    Not a huge fan of Clapton. But this 1999 release is a good listen, especially the 2nd disc which is live from various places; it's mostly from Crossroads vol. 2. Perfect for a Sunday where here in Northwest Illinois we are getting snow once again and have a winter weather advisory. Just staring out the window listening to some blues, very pretty and calm.

    ZZ Top - Tres Hombres



    At some point these guys quit getting props as a "Kick Ass" rock and roll band. I'm not sure why...especially when you listen to Tres Hombres. Maybe it was the overexposure on MTV (Back when they actually showed music videos), maybe they started getting to formulamatic...whatever...back in the early 70s this was the party R & R and is still good stuff today. Some of the later stuff may be dated...but not this album. La Grange still leads the way but the rest of the album is not far behind.

    Steely Dan - Can't Buy A Thrill



    What can I say...Was... and still is...one of my alltime favorite albums. This was my "Demo" music anytime I bought new gear. There are many that will say "Countdown To Ecstacy" or "Pretzel Logic" or "Katie Lied" are better albums (and they are all good) but for me this is the quintessential Steely Dam album...right from the lead in of "Do It Again" which happens to be one of the best rock lead-ins...right there with Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing".

    The Eagles - On The Border



    Still one of my favorite groups. I like the fact that they still do a reunion from time to time.....but not as a characture of their former selves. They get on stage and play music...showcasing how their skills have matured...rather than trying to act like they never have (matured that is). Refreshing in a time where 50 year old rockers try to act like they did when they were 20 something. They've actually held up pretty well...unlike some others (see the Eddie Van Halen thread :( )

    The Cure-Disintegration

    Classic Cure line-up. These guys are very underated, Certainly relegated to the New Wave catagory in the 80's, the music has held up well over the last 15 years or so. Haven't listened to this in over a year and it's still very satisfying. Expanding the latent arena rock sensibilities that peppered Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me by slowing them down and stretching them to the breaking point, the Cure reached the peak of their popularity with the crawling, darkly seductive Disintegration. It's a hypnotic, mesmerizing record, comprised almost entirely of epics like the soaring, icy "Pictures of You." The handful of pop songs, like the concise and utterly charming "Love Song," don't alleviate the doom-laden atmosphere. The Cure's gloomy soundscapes have rarely sounded so alluring, however, and the songs -- from the pulsating, ominous "Fascination Street" to the eerie, string-laced "Lullaby" -- have rarely been so well-constructed and memorable. It's fitting that Disintegration was their commercial breakthrough, since, in many ways, the album is the culmination of all the musical directions the Cure were pursuing over the course of the '80s.

    Today I've listened to several great vinyls that my brother sent me (his extras)
    before work: Talking Head: Speaking In Tounges (I was amazed at how good this sounded, very clean)
    After work: Pink Floyd: Welcome To the Machine
    Now: The Cars self titled album (still my favorite)
